BIDA is the trade body representing Industrial Designers involved in product, service and interaction design. We promote their creative expertise, knowledge and experience. Our members’ work with large and small clients has generated billions of pounds in revenue through the creation and exploitation of IP in domestic and global markets.

Founded in 1993, BIDA operates as a not-for-profit organisation and receiving no government funding or intervention, we are wholly financed by our members and run by voluntary national and regional boards of passionate professional designers.

We are the UK’s only professional body representing those working in the field of Engineering Design. Our members work in a diverse range of industries that span product design, architecture, mechanical, automotive and aircraft design, design education, IT and computing.

Founded in 1930, CSD is the professional body for designers practicing across all design disciplines including product design. It is governed by Royal Charter which specifies objects obliging its members to practice to the highest professional standards. In so doing, it seeks to secure and promote a professional body of designers and regulate and control their practice for the benefit of industry and the public.

Membership is only awarded to designers demonstrating their ability against a set of competences developed as a framework for best professional design practice. The Society supports designers at every stage of their career and operates an educational accreditation programme for design courses.

With members in more than 30 countries around the world, CSD offers a truly diverse and inclusive base of professional designers, each committed to operating to the highest professional standards in whichever field or country they practice.
